Nearing completion of 36-story apartment building will be tallest yet for North Hills
RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — A 36-story apartment complex in North Hills will be the tallest residential structure yet for the area.
Oriental Residences in North Hills will have 376 apartments with floor plans ranging from studios to three bedrooms. The first three levels of the luxury community house 21 penthouse units.
The property includes a rooftop lounge, sauna and spa treatment room, as well as dry cleaning lockers.
A check of rental prices showed that the smallest unit offered at 440 square feet starts at $1,575 per month. The Eastern’s website shows a 2,286-square-foot three-bedroom starting at $13,775 per month.
The tower is nearing completion and in April residents will be able to begin moving in, officials said.
“We continue to see tremendous demand for premium apartments and The Eastern is sure to set a new standard of extraordinary service and experience,” Rob Reid, director of Kane Residential, said in a press release.
Kane Residential operates half a dozen other properties around Raleigh. In North Hills alone, they own Vine North Hills and Park Central Raleigh apartments. The company’s website shows other properties range from $1,380 per month to $4,745 per month. This makes The Eastern their most expensive property to date.
This likely won’t be Kane Realty’s last North Hills build. In September 2021, Kane Realty Corporation submitted an application to rezone four parcels of land near the North Hills Mall. Three of the parcels are on Six Forks Road between the Interstate 440 West on-ramp and Rowan Street, the other parcel is along Lassiter Mill Road and I-440 West. These applications were for 12, 30 and two 40-storey mixed-use commercial zonings.
If the rezonings are approved, it will be at least five years before the buildings are built. There is no estimate yet of the number of apartments or square feet of office space that would come from the project.
The Eastern will welcome its first residents at 4204 Six Forks Road in April. Applicants are currently being accepted.
